Jim's Jazzmaster for the bulk of the "nyc ghosts" tour, later replaced by the Musicman Stingray. The guitar originally had a Strat neck (and was nicknamed "Strazz") but it was converted to a Jazzblaster with a proper neck and Tele Deluxe pickups. Jim used it for 'Expressway' at some point. Lee reclaimed it for the 2006 tour. Contains same tuning notes that this one does, curious...
2 soap bars, replaced w/ Tele Deluxe pickups
Maple fretboard, strat neck (originally), replaced with Jazzmaster neck
1 toggle switch
Mastery bridge added circa 2009
Price tag hanging off tuners at early 2000 tour shows.
Listed as "MAGENTA" on 2000 set lists.
F#GA Gauges: .046 .046 .026 .026 .017 .017
